September Progress Report

The Rival Introduction Video isn’t ready yet, and the Matchmaking Elimination Method isn’t ready yet, either. Why, you ask? This video will explain it to you:

Here’s a list of everything that is new in this build:

  • If you open the debug menu and press the “Q” key, a shadow will appear over Yandere-chan’s panties. (This is so that YouTubers won’t have to go through the extra trouble of putting a censor image onscreen when Yandere-chan’s panties are visible.) (Currently only functional on the default school uniform.)
  • Added a new graphics quality level (“Yandere” with shadows disabled) for people who want to play with the best possible graphics, but desire a higher framerate.
  • Fixed bug that would allow Yandere-chan to give food to a student as the student was cowering in fear after witnessing a murder.
  • Fixed bug that would cause delinquents to stay in school permanently, past the point in time when they were supposed to leave.
  • Fixed bug that was causing a low framerate whenever looking towards the fountain in the center of the school’s plaza.
  • Fixed bug that would prevent a mind-broken slave’s blood from appearing on a weapon that they used to commit suicide.
  • Fixed bug that would cause Yandere-chan’s “twin drills” hairstyle to have a bizarre texture while in her home.
  • Fixed bug that was preventing the “fade to black” effect from occurring when teleporting to the demon world.
  • Fixed bug that would cause the guidance counselor’s text to appear when it wasn’t meant to appear.
  • Fixed bug that was causing exceptionally long loading times when loading the school environment.
  • Fixed bug that would allow the player to access the Favors menu while in Yandere-chan’s home.
  • Fixed bug that allowed the player to use debug commands while in the demon world.
  • Added an easter egg connected to the turtle in the Light Music clubroom.
  • Added a kitten. (No functionality yet. Appearance not yet final.)
  • Began to implement a “Topic” system, which allows Yandere-chan to acquire new conversational topics to speak about with other students. (Not every Topic is currently unlockable, and it is not possible to converse with students about specific topics yet.)

What’s next?

It will probably only take a few days to acquire the rest of the voiced lines that I require for the Rival Introduction Video. However, the music that I require for the video could take much longer to produce – potentially up to 2 weeks, depending on the availability of the composer who has been given the task.

While I’m waiting for the voiced lines and background music, I’ll work on the Matchmaking Elimination Method. There are also a couple of other cool things that I’d like to make videos about…but those things are meant to be surprises, so I can’t tell you what they are yet.

I hope you’re not too upset that the Rival Introduction video and the Matchmaking Elimination Method both aren’t ready yet. I hope that both of those two things will be ready as soon as possible!

  1. This video make me feel quite suspissious about the true nature of yan chan. I mean, in the begining of the game, she will be like yan-dev said … friendless. maybe this will be a reason of her psycotic mind (another is her mother). now I wonder … if you make a “no blud run” where yan chan help every body … she will involve and become more like everybody. I don’t forget the true nature of yandere chan ; she is a crazy girl who want Senpai to love her above all else … but there is a difference between crazy (sereal killer), crazy (selfish psycopath) and crazy (be the best for Senpay <3). With this last one, maybe yandere-chan could learn more about what happens aroud her (druggs, laon sharks, bullying, ect) and involve by her experience for Senpai and realy love him reather than pretend a simple kindness being love … but that still a theory. maybe I'm all wrong.

    • If he did it that way, then Ayano would not be a yandere. Yanderes do not care about anyone, so there’s no way they would want to help a bunch of people to be like them. Yanderes are murderers for the one they love, that’s what a yandere is. If there’s no killing, then there’s no point to the game, it wouldn’t be Ayano’s personality, and the game would be extremely boring.

      • I’m ok wath you say … while we are in yandere simmulator. When the name will become Love Sick, my theory will be more adapted to the game.
        Now a question for you … If Ayano have to kill her rivals … why the befriend and the match making (or even the expulse) elliminations? I mean, there is no dead in these 3 methodes. 😉

      • Yandere’s actually mean getting rid of competition. If they were to do this they wouldn’t necessary kill it’s just they would do what they have to do whether it’s helping them find another love for their Senpai. Or making sure someone gets a cold before a 1K run.

    • I think it’s because there are some rival you can’t just kill like that. There are some people with high level of self defense ect. You need to find an other way to get rid of them ! That’s why there are some methode like expulsion and matchmaking 🙂

    • 1. Yandere Simulator will be re-named, but the name “Lovesick” was only an idea for the new name. 02. Killing somebody may not be the best option, and while Ayano is psychotic, she isn’t stupid. The school will notice if people are disappearing, which causes the atmosphere to drop, and therefore make Yandere-Chan’s life a lot harder. Befriending, Matchmaking, and Expulsion wouldn’t catch the school’s attention. In addition, certain rivals (like Senpai’s sister) will leave you far better off if they’re eliminated non-leathally. 3. While yanderes normally are portrayed to be bloodthirsty, they really just are doing what’s necessary to keep their beloved out of harm’s/love’s way. It’s said by Yandere Dev himself that she gets no satisfaction out of killing, be the victim animal or human, so she has no reason to kill other than if somebody’s planning on snatching Senpai from her. She’ll keep others from loving Senpai any way possible, most likely the least risky way possible. And if you haven’t heard, murder isn’t exactly the safest option ever. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if she’d take non-leathal routes whenever possible, as those would be the routes where there’s the smallest chance of her being exposed for the horrible person she truly is. Remember, not every war is fought with guns and knives. Not every war ends with corpses on the ground. Yandere-Chan isn’t concerned with how she ends her personal war against the rival girls is ended: The only thing she cares about is that she wins.

    • Well those elimination methods are there for those who don’t want bloodshed in their playthrough. Also, just because Ayano is a yandere doesn’t mean that she has to murder everyone. She only cares about getting her rivals out of the way, but it’s up to the player to decide which option to pursue.

  2. God dang YandereDev…you know how to keep me constantly refreshing the page, hyped for anything.

    >I am not in the last bit disappointed YandereDev, in fact I am super happy because it just shows that you put lots of time into your work to make this game as amazing as it can possibly get ❤

  3. Remember about the video where there are blue and pink students? Press K on the the debug menu or the easter egg menu and you got them. So i believe we can get her to the ceiling like in the vid somehow. But then again that just a theory, a YanSim theory, and…. CUT.

  4. YandereDev Hello, I would like to give advice, it’s about ideas that might apply in your game. I’ve been thinking about the possibility that you could put surveillance cameras in the hallways when school already been killed are some students, to increase the difficulty xD
    if you want ideas for the environment of the city and its activities as well, you could play Bully, or if you want further executions and murders could play manhunt 1 and 2 (All these 3 games are rockstar)

    pd: sorry if you arrive somewhere not understand my English, this was written translator xD

    • I doubt that would happen. YanDev has already said that he wants to do a total of around 100 students in the entire school + teachers; if it were like a ‘regular’ school with several hundreds of students miling the halls, it would be practically impossible to sneak through the school – cameras would be similar.

    • About the many students killing idea for what ive read on the wiki yandere-dev said that if u kill a certain amont of students the school will close and u will get an game over

  5. Surprises ? Oh, boy ! What kind of surprises… And yeah, two weeks for music, I think that person and its team are very y busy. YandereDev, take your time and work on Matchmaking Elimination Method.

    • They all already have stereotypes of things: the childhood friend (who is a Tsundere), the (Club) president, the (substitute) teacher-student romance, the little sister, the student council president… Not all of them have to be a type of Dere. Kuudere, up to now, is not a planned rival. So what would be the point of making another one as a rival, just to have the ‘dere’ type? (Honestly, I already hate Tsunderes, regardless of what gender they are, so it’ll be a joy to go for Osana…)

      • Umm actually….

        Tsundere = Osana Najimi
        “Onee-chan” type of girl = Cooking Club Pres.
        Himedere = Kokona Haruka (Possibly) / Drama Club Pres.
        Genki = Swim team Captain
        Dandere = Oka Ruto
        “Accidental” Sexual harasser = The substitute nurse
        Actual Sexual harasser = The substitute teacher
        Delinquent = The Delinquent Rival
        “Notice me Onii – chan” – Senpai’s sister
        Tsundere-y ? / a very strict disciplinarian type of girl?? – Student Counsel Pres.

        I’m not sure of the others but that’s what I saw from the wiki
        ~ \ { • x • } / ~


      • Kokona IS the drama club pres!
        Check out the wiki!
        Her design preview (that was just a black figure with kokona’s hair) was revealed by yanderedev in one of his videos!


        Jay would love her

        Imm sssoooooo eeexxxxccciiittteeedddd for the rival introduction video!!

      • Actually, Kokona will NOT be a rival, but there will be a rival named Kizana Sunobu who is the Drama Club Pres. and will have similar looks to Kokona. She will have purple, tornado pigtails with fabric roses as the head bands. So basically shes Kokona 2.0, I guess.

    • Rival swill have personalities that suit them let me tell them all
      Osana Najimi – Senpais childhood friend (a tsundere)
      The cooking club president -a gentle and warm hearted person and know as big sister/Onee chan (DereDere probably)
      The drama club president (himidere)
      The occult club president-mostly outcast and shy (dandere)
      The swim team captain-fit,tan,and mostly a genki girl
      The substitute nurse-Senpai will be sick for weak and he will be in the nurses office for one week the substitute nurse is pure and innocent but when she is with Senpai she will show sexual stuffs
      The substitute teacher- same as the substitute nurse
      The DELENQUINT rival- DELENQUINT stuffs and she was suspended from school for a very very dark reason
      The Senpai’s sister- mostly a DereDere (I guess) and very over protective and loves Senpai soooooooo much so at Friday she will make Senpai promise to never gets. Girlfriend
      The student concil president-mostly half tsundere and half kamidere

    • Osana Najimi- Tsundere
      Amai Mafin- Onee-Chan
      Swimming Captain- Genki
      Drama President- Himidere
      Oka Ruto- Dandere
      Substitute Nurse- Innocently R@per
      Substitute Teacher- Purposely R@per
      Delinquent Leader- Delinquent and partly Sukeban
      Senpai’s Sister- DereDere
      Student Council Leader- Kamidere

    • You’re in luck! Tsundere, and Himidere characters are already some of the planned rivals for the game! A Kuudere character is already implemented in the debug builds, but not as a rival, and since most Danderes are portrayed as shy characters at first, they will soon play the role as the hero, so it’s safe to assume they will be in the game in the form NPCs with the ‘Justice Minded’ personality. 😀

  6. I think killing everyone should have more consequences, like if over a certain amount of people die in a day it’d a a school masacure and it should skip to the end of the week due to school temporary mourning closure? Or if you kill over a certain amount of people in a week students should stop going of their own accord (honestly if your in a school of a hundred people and 50 of them turn up dead or go missing you’d probably move schools) idk the games still very early development and it’s amazing how far it’s come already, I bet devpie has some brilliant ideas and plans for it that’d id never think of XD

  7. Well, Jay is awesome. He didn’t do mods for Yandere Simulator like most Youtubers on my recommended videos.

    BTW, it’ll be funny if YandereDev added a student based on THAT DUDE!

  8. So…Interpersonal interactions are basically incomprehensible, and they can only be profitably approached through an almost scientific study? That’s an interesting view of the world…

  9. (knock knock)
    yandere dev: what do you want?
    me: who are the rivals?
    yandere dev: stop asking me that question or i will kill you!!
    me: ;( okey
    me: i have something els to ask u yandere dev?
    yandere dev: what know info chan?
    me: who are the rivals.
    yandere dev: 0_0 thats it
    me: i am now dead. x_x

    this is my story of when yandere dev gets stupid emails!
